On June 11, 2015, the honourable Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Mr. Devendra Fadnavis and other dignitaries from the Maharashtra government, along with Jeremy Hunter, President, Henkel Group India, broke ground at our Kurkumbh plant site. At this site near Pune, we will build India’s largest adhesives plant; thus, helping us create the footprint for the next 10 to 15 years.
The Kurkumbh plant will be built in a phased manner. In the first phase, the state-of-the-art, multi-technology manufacturing facility, will have an operational area of about 20,000 square meters with an annual capacity of about 80,000 metric tonnes of adhesives and surface treatment products. It will help us better serve our growing customer base in a dynamic market like India, which is expected to be is one of the growth markets for adhesives. It will also strengthen our customers’ and suppliers’ confidence in Henkel as a committed partner, and create a new industry benchmark as the largest adhesive manufacturing base in India.
Henkel’s Kurkumbh plant will be a model for sustainability and efficiency. The plant will be LEED certified by the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC). It will follow the highest standards of Safety, Health & Environment. This will ensure best-in-class services for our customers, and at the same time ensure quality, improve productivity and efficiency.
